Yarn delivery and CPH update

This is some beautiful Brown sheep cotton fleece in blue mariner that i got from Orgegon Yarn Trail
, great delivery only took 7days from USA to here in SA. All up for 7 skeins cost me $53, so very good.

Also CPH is coming along nicely with all part finished, photo is missing the front right I was working on and I have started on the hood. I am trying madly to finish it by next Saturday for out local show but doesn't look likely as I won't have any buttons, bugger.
It has taken me 2.5 weeks so far so not too bad.

Sorry photo is pretty dull so will try to get a better one later

CPH update

Just a quick photo to show you the progress.

This is the 44 inch pattern and I am only just into the second ball. I brought 6 balls for this project and I am sure I will only use 4 or so.

Central Park Hoodie

I love this pattern and it looks great and funky but I honestly thought it was beyond me cause it looks so techinical with all the cables.

But it is so easy. I'm loving it, I just haven't had that much time to spend on it.

Starting date is the 12th September and I hope once I get into it it won't take me that long.

The colour is Bendigo Rustic Green tweed in 12ply.

We have a little visitor.....

I am guessing this is my small thing swap from Woolaholics.

It is a so cute dinosaur, a tiny little bag with stitch markers in ( I needed more) and I think it is a dishcloth, hope my swapper can confirm.

Love it , thankyou so much.

Something Red, Juliet , oh the choices

I want to make something for me but can't decided what to start on.

The two choices are Something Red , but not red , perhaps in a green like Cascade sierra in Spruce after seeing Lucretia from Woolaholics in hers and we have similar hair colour so I know the colour will look nice.

Also this one called Juliet which is so not my style but it is growing on me a little. In the new age teal from Brown sheep cotton fleece.

Too many decisions

Swap Yarn to shorties

This is the secret swap yarn from Woolaholics that Mary AKA mazadaz sent me and it was perfect for shorties or longies.

I just knitted until basically I ran out of wool. Sorry no action shots yet but just had to show you all as it is so vibrant and i just love it

Few more of the garden, finally worked out how to take close ups.

Spring is here.

Well Spring is truly here and it is time to get cleaned up.

Spent an hour or so out in the garden trying to get the weeds out of the way so after Tracy post i decided to take some photos.

The pots are some i brought a few weeks ago, cost $$$ but look so nice.

Me and my boy

I don;t very often put my face in front of the camera but Flynn was trying to take a photo but we took one of both of us instead. Not a bad shot considering my hair is a mess. Also photo of the finished WIP, the longies that he got not one but two holes in are finally shorts, capris.
